The Good News Letter from Our Pastor Dear Parishioners, J AN UARY — M ARC H 201 5 A publication of St. Mary’s Catholic Church of the Assumption The Christmas season is almost upon us and New Year’s day will be here before we know. This Christmas season my prayer for you comes from a speech from Gregory of Nazianzus. I pray that the spirit of Christmas does not come and go on the 25 th, but stays with us everyday this coming year. I pray that our bodies be living crèches; that everyday we become like the animals that came before Christ in the manger and give praise to our creator. May we be like Mary whose ‘yes’ and belief in God allowed Jesus to grow within her belly; that we can continue in accepting him in the Eucharist and in the belief that it truly is the body and blood of Jesus. Rev. Paul Hudson; Pastor Rectory 254-826-3705 301 S. Harrison P.O. Box 276 West, Texas 76691 AT A GLANCE May our arms be like Joseph’s when they cradled, lifted, hugged, and served Jesus; that we use our arms to embrace Jesus in all our brothers and sisters while serving Christ; that our voices be like the angels, singing glory to God and lifting up those in need; that our eyes and ears be like those of the shepherds and Magi, who heard the angels and saw the star and sought out the Son of God. May our hearts be like the manger that held the baby Jesus, who became so little to turn our poverty into true wealth and joy. May almighty God bless each and every one of you and keep both, you and your families, safe throughout this coming year and may he grant you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Sincerely, Father Paul May almighty God bless each and every one of you... Blessings from Fr.

CDA wishes all of you a Happy New Year! With the help of our members, the CCE students, and some generous contributions, CDA was able to provide Christmas gifts to the former West Rest Haven residents currently located in nursing homes throughout the area. Over 100 packages were distributed and the presents and visits brought smiles and hugs to so many people. We thank all of you for making this worthwhile project such a success. We also provided gifts and food to some families in our community which made their Christmas a little brighter. CDA provided goodie bags which were distributed by Santa Claus at the Katy Depot in December. We assembled 250 goodie bags and had a wonderful time bringing a little extra joy to the children in our area. Area high school students are busy submitting scholarship applications to various organizations. CDA provides local and state scholarships to relatives of living CDA members in good standing.

News The CCE year continues to be a very busy one. The CCE students celebrated the Christmas season by collecting articles again this year for the West Rest Haven and Assisted Living Residents who were placed in Nursing Homes in communities around the West area. These articles were sorted and divided by the Catholic Daughters who then delivered the gifts. It was very heart-warming to see how generous these students were during the season of Christ’s birth. Along with having a lesson each Wednesday, the CCE classes take turns preparing for Wednesday night Mass. They participate in Mass by being lectors, altar servers and gift bearers. The CCE and St. Mary’s 3rd grade and RCIC classes are preparing for two of their Sacraments this year - their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. We will have a parents’ meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 PM. At least one of the parents of the St. Mary’s & CCE 3rd graders and RCIC students should attend this mandatory meeting. We will be discussing First Reconciliation which will be held on Saturday, Jan. 31 at 9:00 AM in our Church. We will also be discussing First Holy Communion which will be on Saturday, May 23. The 10th grade CCE class has been busy preparing for Confirmation. They will be writing a report of the saint they have chosen for Confirmation. The Saint Report is due Sunday, Jan. 11. The 10th grade will be attending a Day Retreat on Saturday, Jan. 24 at the old KC Hall. They will also be writing letters to Father Paul explaining why they desire to be Confirmed and what it means to each of them. Father Paul will respond to each of the students’ letters. These letters are due by Sunday, Jan. 25th. We have our own email address [email protected] so you can communicate with us. We also have a Facebook account WestCCE for all the parents and grandparents to keep up with their children’s CCE activities. Thank you to everyone for your prayers and blessings.

Page 6 January—March Issue 2015 KJZT Society #11 Happy New Year from everyone at KJZT #11 I would like to thank everyone who helped in any way with our November bake sale. It was a success. I would also like to thank all who continue to contribute to the food pantry. The pantry is always in need of peanut butter, cereal, Hamburger Helper and canned meats. All donations are welcome. The Christmas party was held at St. Martin’s Hall on December 14. At the meeting preceding the party, we held elections of new officers. Officers for 2015 are: Father Paul Hudson, Chaplin; Mary Kallus, President; Helen Rauschuber, Vice-President; Theresa Plsek, KJZT Juniors #11 By President Mary Kallus Secretary; and Joyce Nors, Treasurer. The pre-Easter bake sale was brought up for discussion as to what project would benefit from half of the proceeds. The other half is to support our scholarship program. The half that is dedicated to a project is matched by the Catholic Family Fraternal. A motion was made and approved to donate this to the youth group which will be raising money to attend the World Youth Day held in Poland in 2016. The January meeting will be held on the 11th after the 7:30 a.m. Mass. The pre-Easter bake day will be held March 28th at the Parish Center. by Theresa Plsek The KJZT juniors will install their new officers at the January 11th meeting at St. Mary’s Parish Center. Installation will be at 4:00 pm followed by a meeting.

Betty Kostecka, who was the Junior Director, is retiring after 20 years and Sherri Zacharias will be the new Junior Director. We want to thank Betty Kostecka for her many years of service. There will be no meeting in February. There will be a meeting on March 8 th at the St. Mary’s Parish Center and after the meeting, juniors will start making corsages for the women who were former residents of the West Rest Haven.

West Knights of Columbus 2305 By Grand Knight Allan Kubacak Happy New Year!!! Hard to believe another year has flown by.

The KC’s are sponsoring a basketball Free Throw Contest on Sunday, January 11th, at the St. Mary’s Gym. All girls and boys ages 9-14 are encouraged to participate.

It is your Council and your input is valuable. We usually have a meal after the meetings so please join in. The Good News Page 7 Society of St. Vincent dePaul By Cheryl Hoelscher, President As temperatures dropped and the winter weather caused utility bills to rise, calls for assistance to the local Conference of the Society of St. Vincent dePaul increased. Members have been busy visiting homes and providing prayers and assistance for families and the elderly. Our parishioners have continued to be very generous in their donations each month when the Black Bag is passed among the pews. Please remember, as Father Paul explained, to reach for the black bag and pass it to the next person in the pew and say a little prayer for the needy as you pass it along. Your prayers are needed. During the last quarter of the calendar year, our Conference paid over $8,743 in utilities, rent, temporary lodging, and food while collecting $7,121 from our Black Bag collections and additional donations from members and parishioners. Another very successful project, thanks to the contributions of our parishioners, was the Christmas Meal in a Bag project. We gave out over 50 blue plastic and re-usable bags with a list of specific items needed to provide a wonderful Christmas meal and were over-whelmed by the generosity of so many of you!! The families who received the Christmas Meal Bags, along with a dozen eggs and a ham or turkey, were very thankful. I especially want to thank our Secretary Candace for organizing the project and the teams that spent the Saturday before Christmas delivering the many bags. If you are interested in becoming a Vincentian, please call me at 826-3481. We are in need of more members that are able to assist with family visits and answering the SVdP cell phone. The more helping hands we have, the lighter the load. If you would like to schedule a Home Visit to investigate resources and assistance available, please call 254297-9190 on Tuesday or Thursday between 10 AM and 6 PM. You may leave a voice-mail message, if you call outside the hours of operation and a Vincentian will call you back when available. D. C. C. W. News By Evelyn Petter The Diocesan Council of Catholic Women is gearing up for the winter and early spring months with several meetings and our convention. The Austin DCCW Board meeting will be held January 13th at Holy Trinity Parish in Llano. Dianne Friend, Fr. Paul, and myself attend these board meetings and bring back information to our local DCCW group. The Northern Council of Catholic Women will have their quarterly meeting on February 11th at St. Joseph's Hall in West and will be hosted by the ladies of Assumption Parish. The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. and I urge ladies from our parish to attend and see what DCCW is all about. We have a business meeting first and lunch is served following the meeting. Fr. Paul is the Spiritual Advisor for the Northern Council and we have a good representation at our meetings from the West ladies. Quarterly meetings are also hosted by St. John's, Waco; St. Mary's, Waco; Sacred Heart, Waco; and St. Francis, Waco. The DCCW convention will be held April 20—21st in Killeen at the Shiloh Hotel. Since the convention is nearby, I hope many ladies from West can attend the convention. Watch for more information about the convention as it becomes available in the church bulletin.

This is a time to reflect upon the past twelve months and look forward to the next twelve. Resolutions are a way to guide each one of us into a positive direction toward a goal. Many scouts, including myself, have started something only to have it lost as hurdles get in the way of the progress towards that goal. However, by working together as a team with support and encouragement from other scouts and our community, I feel that we can be successful in reaching whatever goals we set for ourselves. We would like to invite you all to “Like” our Official Facebook Page, West Boy Scout Troop 494. This is an excellent way to keep up to date with current events and troop activities. We continue adding photos of our events to our page so that the community can follow our scouting adventures. Troop 494 was recently notified that we have the opportunity for a Philmont Trek in July 2016. A Trek Crew is made up of 12 people- 2 Adults and 10 Scouts who are the age of 14-18. We will again start our monthly Hamburger Sack Lunches in the Spring to help the kids earn their way. More details to follow in the next newsletter.
